Tina Fey as Gov. Palin on SNL, part 2

Sarah Palin: Catie, I’d like to use one of my lifelines.

Catie Couric: I’m sorry?

Sarah: I want to phone a friend.

Catie: You don’t have any lifelines.

Sarah: Well, in that case, I’m just gonna have to get back to ya!

Hilarious. And I don't expect Sarah will be much different on Thursday night.

Palin answers questions during cheesesteak run. LOL

Times Magazine asks "Where is Sarah Palin". Nice links in the article.

It's 2008

Not 1999. Not 2000, but '08, almost '09.
Hilliary didn’t realize it.
McCain is clueless.
Sarah doesn’t give a damn.
Obama’s already in the middle of 2010, 3:00 am.

Does the McCain campaign not know that it’s 2008 and everyone finds out everything? You can’t have a redneck, trigger happy, pro-life, wild-eyed, power welding, PTA grandma in the White House. Period. Why didn’t McCain vet his VP? I’m glad he didn’t, but damn. Dementia?

I’m sorry for the Republican party for being so far behind the technology curve.

Read this.

And this.

And this.

And this.

And this.

People are scrutinizing public figures to the nth degree now, and rightly so. Now's not the time to be a corrupt Politician. I say, get into drugs or the mob. A criminal is a criminal.

Obama ‘08

P.S. Random thoughts on McCain's speech tonight:

Is he dead?
McCain done died?
Cindy looking dumber than a ...
Mama must have been resurrected for this too.
Mama doesn't know where she is.
Has no plan.
War stories were touching.
Holding the podium like a walker.
He wants change? What? He took our theme? Really?
Cindy know she wrong. Could do better. He pulled that? She the one with the money. WTF?
Convinced he's dead. They pulled the "dead Pope trick". I see the rod in his back.

RNC ...zzzz...WTF?!....

So the RNC finally got somewhat entertaining. I'll be honest, the first couple days I tried to watch it, but I did not succeed. I gave it 10 seconds and if I felt compelled to hit the "Guide" button, I moved around. zzzzzz for REAL.

Now, today things changed up. Rudy Giuliani and his bad grill (what's up with politicians not going to the dentist?!?) tried to "rip in to Obama". I put it in quotes because it's bull. Some sites said he ripped into Obama, but what I saw on my screen was a politician whose campaign lost steam before it even left the tracks, trying to down a man who secured 18 million votes. His delivery was weak and he stuck to pitiful jabs like:

Maybe Gov Palin's home town is not .... cosmopolitan enough for Senator Obama

On the other hand, you have a resume from a gifted man with an Ivy League education. He worked as a community organizer. What? He worked -- I said -- I said, OK, OK, maybe this is the first problem on the resume.

He worked as a community organizer. He immersed himself in Chicago machine politics.

Not a personal attack, a statement of fact. Barack Obama has never led anything, nothing, nada.

And -- and he'll do it with an all-of-the-above approach, including nuclear power, and, yes, off-shore oil drilling.
Drill, baby, drill?
Drill, baby, drill.

And so on ...

Rudy was long on corny one liners and very short on substance. I wasn't impressed. It seems like the Republican plan is to simply bash Obama and the media.

What I also noticed was that he, like all the other senior citizens who spoke, didn't mention Bush. Ever. Is he the Satan of the GOP or what?!

Mrs. Sarah Palin

Well, well, well. Isn't she a little...nothing. I expected to be accidentally knocked off my socks by this Alaskan babe. I thought she might surprise and deliver a speech for the books. I thought she'd give Obama a run for his money. Boy, was I wrong. Obama will eat her up and politely spit her out.

This school marm threw out little zingers at Obama every chance she got, but her digs rang as shrill and weird as her funny looking faces and odd voice. She scared me.

What accent was that? Why was she making those faces? Is McCain trying to lose? Was her daughter going for the Pam Anderson pregnant look? Why was the boyfriend looking like "save me" and chewing gum (snuff??), why was he on stage like he was somebody's son-IN-LAW, and Lord, why did the little girl lick her hand and rub it on the comatose baby's head? You can't beat that kind of redneck footage!

Sarah Palin did two things tonight:

1 -She sealed her spot in the Republicans hearts who know what's up and DON'T GIVE A DAMN. Those people will vote Republican if Charlie Sheen was on the ticket. Yes she sounded like the chair of the PTA, but that is 100% irrelevant to the die hard Republican.

2- She gave the Republicans who care about the economy, healthcare, and their kids a reason to pause. Oh yeah, they are thinking long and hard about this woman. Hopefully, she'll put her foot real good and deep in her mouth in the coming months. After tonight's speech, I don't see how that can be avoided. What comes across as "feisty and fearless" in Alaska will look like "bull-headed bitch" in the big United States of America.

This woman is no pit bull, more like a Boston Terrier. Bring it on, Scary Lady. Obama '08.

Sarah Palin's Daughter Not Practicing Abstinence

Despite Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin's stance on abstinence, her daughter, Bristol, still managed to get pregnant at age 17. And then, no one really knows for sure if Sarah's latest baby, Trig (wtf?), is actually Sarah's grandson. The Internet is buzzing that Trig is also the child of Sarah's teenaged daughter, Bristol. Not to mention, her own mother-in-law isn't sold on her VP credientials or capabilities:
Faye Palin said the entire family was shocked by the news on Friday. "I'm not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she's a woman and a conservative. Well, she's a better speaker than McCain," Faye Palin said with a laugh. "People will say she hasn't been on the national scene long enough. But I believe she's a quick study." More here

Let's be real. There's a very good chance that Need-A-Cane McCain might die anytime between right now and 4 years from now. I don't want Sarah Palin to step in as President. And, I'm not too convinced she can even give a good speech after watching her frenzied talk the other day. Sarah Palin has way too much going on to run for Vice President right now. She reminds me of a small town principal on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Let's give this woman some Bath & Body Works and let her take a long vacation and relax.

I'm all for Bristol having her baby (or aborting it if she so chooses), but I have a few questions for her mother:

1. Do you still think Abstinence-only is the best method to cut down on unwanted teen pregnancies?

2. With grandmother hood looming, and 5 kids of your own -- one of whom has Down's Syndrome -- don't you think you have too much on your plate to lead the country?

3. How does your husband feel about this? Is he mad at all the extra work he'll have to do?

4. Does Bristol's boyfriend want to marry her?

5. Does Bristol want to marry her boyfriend?

6. Does Bristol want to have this baby?

7. Did you give birth to Trig? Did Bristol?

8. Are you ever going to snatch off your eye glasses and take the pin out of your hair and transform into Super Beauty Queen White Woman?
